Tyra Banks, host of “America’s Next Top Model,” has signed on to write a series of fantasy novels on the world of modeling. Her publishers made the announcement on Tuesday, May 11. The series will be comprised of three books and is set to be published in the summer of 2011.

The first book will be entitled “Modelland.” Tyra Banks has already finished writing the first book of the trio series. “Modelland” depicts the life of a teenage girl who attends an academy for “Intoxibellas,” another name for superficial models at the academy. The society is make-believe.

Delacorte Press will be publishing “Modelland.” The publisher has described the book as bringing issues to light that involve relationships and body image for women. Ultimately, the book is meant to empower women of all ages.

In January, Tyra Banks announced that she will be leaving her talk show “The Tyra Banks Show” in order to launch Bankable Studios, her own production company.
